Comments

Briarbrook Golf Club is located in Carl Junction, a suburb of Joplin, MO. For a community-owned course, Briarbook is great. The tees, fairways and greens are in excellent condition . . . for the most part. With a couple of million dollars, Briarbrook could transform itself into a top-tier course because its foundation is conducive to a wonderful golf course. The greens are fairly large, with large sweeping breaks and many of the tee boxes are plush. Although there are some bare spots on the fairways most are in good condition.

I enjoy me some funk and the 11th does not disappoint. It is a 160/130 yard par 3. When I drove up to the tee box there was only one green in sight but it just didn’t seem to be the right green because its front side looks like the steep backside to another hole’s green. Plus, you have to hit over a lake to this elevated green (the elevation prevents you from seeing the green’s surface), 80% of the left side is protected by a tree, and the right side has a bunker. Crazy hole! This hole is definitely a contender for our 18 Funkiest Holes in MO. A couple of pictures of this hole are included to the left.

All in all, Briarbrook Golf Course is a great community course and, if you live in or are visiting the Joplin area, you should play it.

Thanks to the GM and Head Golf Pro, Kaleb Forkner for his hospitality.
